How has your research experience helped you?

Teaching is my passion! So the main drive to undertake a research degree was to become an academic. I was lucky to get the best supervisors at the Faculty of Built Environment who not only help me navigate my research project efficiently but also guided me to use researched based techniques and improve my teaching pedagogy. The teaching experience along with the educational improvement courses at UNSW enabled me to secure a lecturer position.
